Default The Mistress (not a ranger)

1/18/2011, I got the whole interior cleaned up, all the electrical crap pulled, lines marked for a Fernon chop...








I cut the top off and got it sectioned as well.

Roof



Rear cut off for sectioning



Here you can see the lines I cut at



The Main Body




The 8" section piece (extra metal if needed)



The pile of stuff so far...



Setting the top on.






It was about 6" too long. Odd because I sectioned 8" out of the main body and then 4" out of the top. So we continued to section the roof 6".




Welded the back roof onto the car.






Now the front half of the top goes on.

Rebuilt B pillars, reworked doors, and 7 hours of welding. I got home, took a shower, turned down sex (rare for me), and went to bed early, also rare for me.

But the outside is done, minor welding needed to finish, then a bunch of grinding will finish the chop top.

Only grabbed a few pics...

Plans are to run fenderless, 10" wheels out back wrapped in 295/50 15 cheaters, 6" in front with 205/75 15s in front. Both white walls. Front axle will be extended the amount I shortened the body, 8". It'll be hot.

Awesome job so far!
What's gonna power this? Built buss motor? Standard bug motor?
